October 1, 2013 update
October 1, 2013
Greetings from the rainy Northwest. As the weather here dampens our streets and trails, our spirits are on the rise. Though our progress continues to be slower than any of us like, it is steady and significant. Today, we want to report three substantial developments:
We have completed engineering analysis of BodyFloat and our testing confirms our new versions to be stronger and lighter: units we can ship to you with confidence.
We are in the final stages of negotiating a substantial investment that will give us the ability to get back into production with an immediate goal of fulfilling our obligations to our Kickstarter supporters. We will post Kickstarter Reward information as soon as possible.
We continue to earn validation with both comfort and performance aspects of BodyFloat from riders, bike-fitters, and industry leaders and contacts.
Again, getting BodyFloat to the market is taking longer than we hoped. A few Kickstarter supporters have noted our progress, it is slower than desired. We are moving forward as quickly as possible.Getting this product to you has proven to be very complex, so we are taking the time to do so correctly.
We will post another update in 2-4 weeks as news comes in and we drill down on product delivery estimates. Thank you for your patience and support.
PS: check out this short video of BodyFloat in action over ½” bumps every 14” at 20mph!
